As we continue to build these centers, we must have flexibility to evolve our focus, and provide room to expand and extend our mission and be responsive to change.
The Architectural Archives
With a remarkable collection that spans from the 17th century to the present, the Architectural Archives supports teaching and scholarship and also organizes exhibitions and public programs for a broad range of audiences. Support for program initiatives including exhibitions, publications, and research will continue to sustain the Archives’ rich legacy.
The Ian L. McHarg Center
Bridging art and science, policy and design, The Ian L. McHarg Center for Urbanism and Ecology brings the important legacy of its namesake—arguably the most consequential environmental planner of the 20th century—into the 21st century. This new Center builds on the University’s position as a global leader in urban ecological design, educating about and bringing to action McHarg’s renowned philosophy of “designing with nature.”
The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy
A home for research and teaching on energy policy at the University. The Center works with faculty and students across all 12 schools and has especially strong partnerships with Engineering, Wharton, Law, Annenberg, and Arts & Sciences. The priority over the next three years is to create a internationally renowned energy policy faculty at Penn that can leverage the Center’s research and teaching platform. The Center needs to provide appropriate space for its scholars in the Center’s home within the historic Fisher Fine Arts Library. Also, the Center needs to provide doctoral fellowships to create a cadre of researchers who will support the next generation of energy innovation.
